BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Icertis, the leading provider of enterprise contract lifecycle management in the cloud, today announced that Microsoft has implemented and standardized on the Icertis Contract Management (ICM) platform to globally manage its Enterprise Volume Licensing and OEM agreements. A key driver for Microsoft's selection of ICM was the need to handle peak periods for the company's rapidly growing worldwide cloud business. Deployed on Microsoft Azure, ICM delivers unprecedented contracting velocity, reducing contract cycle times from 90 days to 15 days and generating up to 175 agreements per minute.
"With the Icertis Contract Management platform, we are providing our sales team with a robust, hyper-scale contract management solution to handle the high quarter-end and year-end volumes," said Tony Ulkekul, Head of Enterprise Commerce Engineering at Microsoft. "Leveraging the meta-data from Microsoft CRM, the Icertis platform automatically generates complex, multi-page, multi-clause licensing agreements in multiple languages and geographies with unprecedented speed and precision."
The powerful combination of Microsoft Azure's auto-scaling, coupled with ICM's ability to handle high concurrency loads, ensures smooth handling of surges in demand when salespeople rush to get sales agreements signed.
